Boise Airport Consolidated Rental Car Facility

Bringing Together Wide-Ranging Expertise for Aviation Project with Many Stakeholders

Boise, Idaho, is booming, and so is its airport. The Boise Airport is planning a major concourse expansion, but standing in its way is the current rental car facility.

HDR has partnered with Demattei Wong Architecture to design a new consolidated rental car facility for the City of Boise, an $90 million-plus facility with competing demands from numerous stakeholders. This includes concept refinement, schematic design, detailed design and construction administration.

The concept includes:

  • Seven-level rental car garage, without roof
  • Approximately 1,094 ready/return spaces and customer kiosks on levels 1 through 6
  • Approximately 297 rental car storage spaces on the open level 7
  • Vehicle ramp directly off Rickenbacker Street, multiple helixes, stairways, and elevators
  • Approximately 20,000-square-foot CSB attached to the garage
  • Approximately 4,000-square-foot enclosed passenger walkway connecting to the terminal building

Local Team Backed By National Expertise

A ConRAC is a complex facility that demands the collaborative efforts of many disciplines converging to satisfy the competing needs of numerous stakeholders including the various car companies and the airport itself. Success requires a proven, coordinated approach to project administration, from concept through construction, and a deep understanding of how airports work.

Demattei Wong Architecture is an international expert in airports and the rental car industry, particularly related to the development of ConRAC facilities. The firm was a great fit for the team that includes HDR staff both in Idaho and around the country, including experts in aviation, building engineering services and traffic. The benefits to the Boise airport include a boots-on-the-ground perspective of people who know Boise, plus national expertise with ConRAC design and project management.

The design of this project is scheduled to be complete in 2023, and construction begins in 2024.
